Mark Sinclair who is known to the world as Vin Diesel is notably very famous for his portrayal of Dominic Toretto in the Fast & Furious franchise which has, in turn, made him one of the richest actors in the world. He has lent his skills to two other chronicles such as XXX and The Chronicles of Riddick. The character that he plays in Fast & Furious is known for his dedication to his family and from all indications, it is clear that this dedication is also practiced in his personal life. He is a dedicated father and partner, but in all of this, there is a catch that makes it hard to know the details of the type of life this actor leads.
The actor, who has also thrived as a producer, screenwriter, and director prefers to keep a low profile when it comes to his personal life, so little is known about it. He was once quoted to have said he wouldn’t put it out there on a magazine cover like some actors do, avowing he would emulate the code of silence of Hollywood greats like Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, and Al Pacino. Vin has kept his promise over the years but the media has been relentless about prying into his private life, so some information about his relationship with Paloma Jimenez has been divulged to the public.

Among all their children of the famous actor and his spouse, the last child and daughter Pauline seems to be the most famous despite being the youngest. This is because she was named after the late actor Paul Walker, who was not just Vin’s co-star in the Fast and Furious film series but also his bosom friend.
Vin explained the choice with a touching story about how he felt that Walker who died in 2013 was in the room when he was cutting the umbilical cord of his daughter during her birth. The actor said thoughts of Paul could not leave his mind as he signed the register of his newborn child: he wrote paul as her name and later added “ine” to make it a feminine name.
In an appearance on the Jonathan Ross Show, Vin said that it was Walker who had given him the advice of being present in the delivery room while his kids are birthed. He further said the late actor nudged him to cut the umbilical cord, something he has become very proud he did. The nickname for the baby of the house is Little Angel and she has been seen in several pictures and videos that the actor shares online on his Instagram page.
Like her older brother, it is still earlier to tell what Pauline would do with her life as an adult. She is still a child with a lot of growing up to do. Nonetheless, if she chose to become a model like her mom or an actor like her dad, she can count on her parents to give her all the support and guidance she needs.
Vin Diesel is also the godfather of Walker’s girl, Meadow Rain Walker.
